A car ride through the city
The Roman Forum
We made acquaintance at the Priam Hotel in downtown Rome where we began this wonderful photo tour. Our first location was the Roman Colosseum. We were actually dodging around a demonstration taking place in the center of the city. So we switched around locations a little bit.
The sun was just fantastic shining behind the landmark. It just needed to be counterbalanced a little bit with some external light. Once we got the right pictures we moved on to the next destination.
Piazza del Campidoglio
Was the best choice to follow. With stunningly beautiful views over the forum and ancient Rome. Providing a great panorama over the ruins as well as unique portrait opportunities. Like posing next to ancient marble statues or underneath roman porticoes shooting in between columns. They even pulled out a bright red carpet for us! Which matched the wonderful red roses as well as Alex’s red socks!
The Roman Pantheon
This was our next site of choice. Concentrating first on taking pictures at the base of the large massive columns which so characterize the ancient structure. Then we tried catching the right moment to take a portrait shot with the light shining through the hole above. We took the finals photos just outside the Pantheon. In the main square and next to the water fountain.
The Gianicolo water fountain
This was our last destination, photographing the beautiful fountain facade as backdrop to our engagement session. Then we crossed the street and included panoramic views over the city rooftops. The photo tour ended with a final image of the engagement ring photographed over the red roses and a limo car transfer service back to the Hotel.
